This is interesting. Now, at the risk of sounding very ignorant and also offensive maybe, can I ask you if the hymns that are spoken of here has anything to do with the Bhajans or present day devotional songs, or these were something entirely different? Thanks for sharing Dr. Menon.

All souls are pure. Thanks a lot dear Red Soul! Answering your query, the Bhajans, sung these days are in praise of Indian Deities like Krishna, Rama, Devi, Ganapati, , Hanuman and so on. Vedic Hymns are very different. They sing in praise of the elements of Nature like the sun, fire, water, wind and earth.

I am very happy, dear Poet, you have changed your name to Red Soul. This sounds good. In fact, i had decided to suggest that the word 'Idiot' be removed, Speaking as a philosopher, there is no Soul in this world who is an Idiot.

The study and understanding of Vedas is branching out systematically. Samhitas, Brahmanas and Aranyas are like a 3D presentation of Vedic teachings. Thanks a lot, Geeta ji.
